Homejoy Facing Employment Class Action Lawsuits over California Labor Law Violations

- by

San Francisco, CA: Homejoy Inc. is facing two potential employment class action lawsuits, alleging the company is in violation of California labor laws.

The house-cleaning business allegedly fails to pay its workers minimum wage or overtime, denies workers legally mandated breaks and requires house cleaners to incur their own business-related expenses, among other infractions, according to one lawsuit. Specifically, the lawsuit claims Homejoy misclassifies its workers as "cleaning professionals" as independent contractors, rather than employees.

Additionally, the lawsuits allege Homejoy workers must wear a shirt with the Homejoy logo on it while servicing homes and can be subject to "performance improvement plans" if their ratings are too low. The complaints further claim that "cleaners are an integral part of Homejoy's business of providing cleaning services, among other services, to its customers."

Plaintiffs are seeking damages in the amount of unpaid overtime compensation, unpaid minimum-wage compensation, unpaid reimbursed business expenses, one hour of additional pay for each workday completed without meal breaks and another hour of compensation for each work day without rest breaks??"all with interest. The Private Attorneys General Act action seeks civil penalties and attorney fees.

Plaintiffs are represented by Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho.
